Has there been news on Neal?

When Quinn was asked a few weeks ago how Neal was progressing, he said he was making good progress. Supposedly should be ready to go for TC the way it sounded. With the season possibly delayed, no reason to believe he won't be 100 percent when the time comes.

How often does a team hit three playmakers in a draft though?   You see two fairly often - three?   Much much smaller world.

Agree. Snaring three playmakers won't be easy, but the Falcons are several impact players away from having a top 10 D. They need to make it happen despite the long odds.

The odds that you will get more than two playmakers in a draft with six picks is probably 20-1.

Fair point. The more picks you have the higher the odds of getting that playmaker.

Cause you are getting a great value with the WR in this draft... you have to take advantage of that.. why not get a 4th rounder that would play like a 2nd rounder ??

Because we don't need another stud receiver right now.  We are in win now mode, and another receiver doesn't help us to accomplish that goal.

I am not greedy. 

I just want two playmakers out of this draft.  

Just get Kinlaw, and Murray/Queen.  We have the draft capital to move up to get both of them in the first.  

Our O is good enough to win as is.  Our D would set up pretty well with just those two additions.

There some logic to that. If we didn’t have needs all over the place then I’d say go for the playmakers. But then again you can’t guarantee playmaker status.

Once again neglecting DT :(  Also don't like that he waited so long to target a DB.  Although i can understand the reasoning waiting till the 4th for sneed with going Hightower 1st.  I think he is a really good player if we can sign a FA Dt thats really good to pair with our guys and 1 more vet CB i think this would be a very strong draft for us. 

Yea if we go another year with a crappy and weak DT rotation I hope everyone in the front office gets fired. Grady cant do everything by himself. Year after year we ignore DT.

More picks doesn't equal more playmakers and such.

More first round picks do.

well the subject at hand was getting 3 playmakers out of one draft and I basically said that is almost impossible to do with limited picks - now a team like Dolphins w/ three first round picks and multitude of early picks have a great shot.

KOG and others were saying we needed 3 playamakers out of this draft - don't see how we can get that done.   The percentage chance is very, very small.

I’ve got a brilliant idea! Something we’ve never tried before.  Let’s trade back up into the first round!

But what about our guy Kazee. He makes plays. I guess it depends on your definition of a playmaker.

Maybe 1 or 2 per draft of something like that. Which makes it pretty impressive if you hit on a fifth. TD also struck gold w another 5th rounder.

If Falcons get two playmakers and another two useful players out of our picks we have now that will be a WIN.

They can just do the draft online. Camp and such is what would be cancelled.

That’s good. Hopefully it can be online. I’d probably still watch any programming related to an online draft.
